With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

See if the issue clears up. With no CEL, its hard to make an accurate guess.

I'll try that plugs are cheap compared to all the sensors I couldn't believe how much all the sensors are.. What kind of plugs did u use? I heard iridium plugs don't work good in toyota's?

I did clean the MAF I heard about the idle control sensor doing that. Do u just use throttle body cleaner to clean that?

first the easiest way to check it is keep your foot down on the gas and see if it dies, if you let go and it does it very well may be your IAC, id honestly get a tooth brush and rags and clean it with MAF cleaner or brake cleaner, but be wary of brake cleaner and plastic or sensors
